Speedometer gearing

Are all Factory Samurai Speedos geared the same?

Re: Speedometer gearing

As far as I know, yes. There are 2 gears available for the Xfer case end of the speedo cable.
They have 19 ad 20 teeth respectivly, and that would alow for a 5% change from where you are.

Re: Speedometer gearing

Or, you could buy a new spedo insert from me that would be customized for your gearing needs..

Re: Speedometer gearing

howdy,
nowhere are you saying that you can make a speedo gear that would fix you speed to the gears and tires you run? sorry this has made me take a second take.

Re: Speedometer gearing

The reason I am asking is, I bought a tach cluster with speedo Off of ebay.
When I installed it into my sammy, The speedo was off about 20 mph. Actual speed was 55, speedo read 75.
I have stock gearing and my tire size is 225-75-r15.
The speedo should have been off in the other direction by less than 5 mph.
There was evidence that someone had been into the cluster.
I am wondering if someone either put a mph face on a kph unit, or put a kph speedo into an mph cluster?

I took my old speedo out of my non tach cluster and put it into my tach cluster and now the speedo reads about 5 mph slow.

What is the deal?

Re: Speedometer gearing

Nowhere,
Are you making speedo gears and selling them? If so, what do you get for them and what do you need to know to make one? I am definately interested if that is the case. Let me know.

Re: Speedometer gearing

Noooooonnonono, I did not say it was a custom dash spedo insert. It has nothing to do with the samurai gearing at all, there would be no modification at all to that. Whatever % you're off, that's what would be corrected.

Anyone interested?
